The day after Setsubun is Risshun, so some people say that Setsubun is New Year’s Eve and Risshun is New Year’s Day.
There is a belief that Setsubun is a time to purge demons (i.e. evil spirits, etc.) and welcome the new year.
Since I have said this many times in various places, the number of mistakes in articles on the Internet has been decreasing.
Setsubun is not the Lunar New Year.
The New Year of the lunar calendar is called Chinese New Year.
The new moon near Risshun is the first day of the new year.
The Lunar New Year falls within half a month before or after Risshun.
Therefore, the date of Risshun and Chinese New Year are close to each other.
It may be that the Chinese New Year celebrations, especially in the Chinese sphere, have left an impression on people.
In some cases, Risshun is before Chinese New Year, and in other cases, it is after Chinese New Year.
In some cases, it is before the Chinese New Year, and in other cases, it is after the Chinese New Year.
In some cases, Risshun is celebrated on December 15, and in other cases, it is celebrated on January 15.
In some cases, Risshun is celebrated on December 15th, and in other cases, it is celebrated on January 15th.
It is said that it was uncomfortable to have Risshun before the New Year.
It is called Risshun within the year.
In the Kokin Waka Shu (collection of ancient Japanese poems), an old man wrote
In the Kokin Waka Shu, an old Japanese poet wrote, “Within the year, spring will come, and I will say, ‘This year,’ not ‘This year.
It’s already Risshun before the year is over, but should we call this year last year? Or should I say this year? This is the meaning of the poem.
In the lunar calendar, the first day of the new year is called Risshun.
So until the Edo period, which day was considered to be the New Year?
As you can see in the above verse, the day that numerically falls on January 1st was considered to be the New Year.
However, New Year’s events seem to have been held on Setsubun and Risshun.
Perhaps it is because there are still some old customs in Kyoto.
In Kyoto, there are still some old customs that are still practiced.
Some people sleep with a treasure ship as a pillow.
There are also prayers to ward off evil spirits.
There is also a feeling of New Year’s Day.
